these probl >> chris: congressman, mitt romney has been campaigning for two years, there are only five weeks left in the campaign, forgive me, but i want to look at a couple of polls here, according to a "wall street journal" survey, 4 2% of americans think the economy will get better in the next year and 18% worse, and 32% say it will stay the time and a "new york times" poll, asked who can handle the economy better, obama leads romney 6 points in ohio and five in florida. with five weeks left, months, years of campaigning already past us, isn't he in danger of losing the rationale for his campaign, that he the better steward of the economy? >> you know, in these kinds of races people really focus near the end. and that is happening now. the president is trying to distort our record and our pro-growth tax reform cuts taxes 20% and higher take-home pay for middle class and pro-growth economic policies, that creates about 7 million jobs. so, the final analysis, people will realize, all the president is offering is more of the same with another round of stimulus and higher tax rates on job cre
's sole superpower five years from now or maybe three years from now. it is incumbent on mitt romney to do the same thing that netanyahu did at the u.n. with the chart. with the bomb and the 90% red line. he needs to tie that together in a visual way. what is the world going to look like and what are we going to live like if america is not the unquestioned superpower in the world and how is this translating to the lives of every day americans. does it matter? i think most people want america to be the strongest and want competence on the issues. >> chris: juan? >> when you look back at the timeline i think susan rice when she spoke to you chris gave you the best information she had at that time. and what you see now coming from the dni office you later saw coming from general petraeus at cia and leon panetta at defense is that is what american intelligence was indicating at the time. i think susan rice was forthcoming with you. adifferent information has come in and therefore the story has changed. in the current political environment it is made out to be this is distortion or as laura sai
happens this year, making of american presidents >> chris: i'm chris wallace. the romney ryan ticket turns to the debates to try to narrow the gap against president obama. with 37 days until the election, we go on the campaign trail with paul ryan. >> this is a high stakes election. we will give the country a very clear choice. >> chris: and we sit down for an exclusive interview in which we discuss the economy, the new focus on national security and growing criticism of the romney campaign. paul ryan only on "fox news sunday." then, we will preview wednesday's first obama/romney debate and ask our sunday panel what each candidate needs to do to win the first face-off. and our power player of the week has spent almost half his life telling the inside story of how a president rose and fell from power. all right now on "fox news sunday." and hello again from fox news in washington. with just five weeks until election day and new polls showing president obama leading in key swing states, the presidential debates may be mitt romney's last best chance to turn this race around. and so we wanted
the president an to do in another four years people don't know. and so mitt romney still has an opportunity, i think, to not onay >> you can say the same about mitt romney. >> you could, you could, but the president has got a record of four years that a lot of americans aren't happyith. he's not coming close to driving that message. he's still doing one event a day. nothing or creates a negative story or has some old video pop out. this is not left wing pundits or reporters who don't like mitt romney. this is what every republican i talk to is saying, scratching their head saying how can he continue to waste another day? i'm looking at my calendar eve day, when is he going to win a sile ns cye? >> i would argue more positive for obama and say he's doubled the stock market, he's taken the unemployment rate from double digits down to eight. if he does that again, he'll take it down to six. if you want to say i'll take it down two or three points further, just stay on that let'keooat t a new obama campaign ad just put out a powerful ad airing in swing states that uses romney's own words against h
election. >> romney paid 14% in taxes last year on 13 million in income. >> obama wages war on coal. >> they blow everything out of proportion. >> reporter: in colorado alone, $47 million in five months have been spent by the romney and obama campaign. come november people here can tell the rest of the nation how they feel about enduring all those tv ads. >> let me get your e-mail address. >> reporter: amendment 65 is on the ballot. if passed the state's congressional delegation would be required to propose an amendment to the u.s. constitution limiting campaign contributions and spending. this is the executive director of colorado common cause. >> the result is a democracy that distorts the voice of ordinary people in favor of those who can write multimillion dollar expects. >> reporter: millionaires would argue they have the right to free speech as well. >> free spech protects what we say but it shouldn't be that we can scream louder than others. >> reporter: the 2010 ruling said restriction on contributions was restriction on free speech. a statement provided to cbs news warns wh
a combined 68 visits there this year. but today romney was trying out a brand new strategy. which was expressing emotion. he replaced his usual stories about small business owners succeeding all on their own with stories about people struggling economically. >> i've been across this country, my heartaches for the people i've seen. i was yesterday with a woman who was emotional and she said look, i've been out of work since may. she was in her 50s. i don't see any prospects. can you help me? >> jennifer: now as hard as it is for some to picture mitt romney's heart actually aching for people especially people in the dreaded 47% i actually think that this is a good strategy for him. he has to show emotion. he has to show that he can empathize with everyday americans and that's something that actually president obama doesn't really need to prove because voters seem to understand that he cares. but what they're less sure of is the president's plan for the future and so that's why today the president laid out very specific e
as president. we've had him for 3 1/2 years. mitt romney is still an open book. people have to say, do i want to live with this guy every day? is he going to be quick on his feet? how prone is he to gaffes? does he know how to spar? does he show an inner toughness? in truth the pressure is on mitt romney on this first debate to seem to be -- at least get parity with president obama or victory with the immediate pundit analysis after the game. >> when you have a challenger going up against an incumbent president, doesn't the debate stage also make it possible for the challenger to also look presidential because you are going head-to-head with the leader of the free world? >> absolutely. i think that's an advantage. give that in the column advantage sitting president. you immediately look presidential. you're arriving with a presidential entourage to denver. on the other hand, you've got to be careful you don't say anything at all controversial or squirrely, because you're not just in a debate, you're representing the united states all over the world. if you say something bizarre it's going too
,000 a year. >> the answer is like with releasie ining romney's tax ret the answer is one they don't want to give. they bet the farm on not giving the answer. the plan was not to have a plan, was to run against barack obama's plan, and just keep pointing the finger at him and not have any specifics to offer of your own so you could never be attacked. >> like a bad jewel heist movie when everybody gathers in the corner in the back of the van and the plan is to have no plan. and then someone is like that's a really bad plan. >> that's a bad plan. >> speaking of bad plans or questionable plans, liz, i want to play new romney advertising from the campaign and gop super pacs that focuses on the kids and more specifically the babies. let's take a look. we are calling those babies up, but babies are slow -- very slow moving. >> they're asking the babies about math. that is never a good plan. >> i'll summarize until the folks in the control room can get it together. the -- basically making the case, as -- babies have arrived. >> here come the babies. >> take a look. >> dear daughter, welcome to a
class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need romney in denver, colorado. before we get to carl, we want to go to ed henry live with the president in las vegas tonight's. how is the prep going for the big deal tomorrow night? good evening. >> it's been hours of debate prep. it's been intense. they're being very tight lipped about what the president is doing to practice. but he tried to get out today from the resort he's staying at in henderson, nevada. he went to the hoover dam for the first time in his life. maybe get a fresh air or do thinking before tomorrow's first showdown face-to-face with mitt romney. interesting, you mentioned vice president biden was speaking for the president, kind of slipped up by suggesting the middle class has been buried the last four years. so he clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> n
romney tape from his bain years. >> bain capital is an investment partnership. >> i'll ask robert reich what mitt romney means when he says he's harvesting companies. >>> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> and the guy who has no idea what he's talking about when it comes to women has the nerve to call senator claire mccaskill unladylike. we'll bring you the latest on the todd akin disaster. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thank for watching. iowa kicked off the 2012 election in january. today it was the first state where people could cast their votes in person for the general election. the race is on. the race has been tight in iowa, but president obama has the momentum. the latest ten-day poll average from "real clear politics" shows president obama with nearly a five-point lead. iowa voters were out in full force starting at 7:00 this morning. one election commissioner said this could be a record-breaking year. >> this was by far the busiest opening day we've had in the ten years i've been in the office. we were thinki
and said he voted for obama four years ago and not sure at all. he is open to voting for governor romney if he knew what he stood for. that is governor romney's charge here to put some meat on the bones of what he stands for on his policies. and people are open to that. >> jim, imagine yourself as a debate moderator this week and put on your mask and go with it. what kind of questions would you like to see these candidates address that will actually speak to the concerns you hear voters have about the future of this country? >> there is one question and i don't want to tell jim what to do but ask it different ways, and that is how in the world what you are proposing enough to get this country back to work, because neither of these candidates has a plan and by their own party's ideology and i want him to push them on that and that would be an opportunity for the president to explain what it is and it is not just incremental, but an opportunity for governor romney to make that pitch to voters, hey, i have a plan that's different, and something we haven't tried before that is going to be ne
tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. deriding the 47% of the country that he said did not pay federal income taxes and who were dependent on the government and victims and who he would never be able to reach because he would not be able to purr suede them to take responsibility for their lives. >> i'll never convince 47% of the country to take personal responsibility and care for their lives. those comments he describes his disdain for half the country, those comments have had a measurable impact on the campaign. in the new poll just released in the last couple hours,
the shorthand is we can't afford another four years like the last four years and a choice in mr. romney's view between what he calls the again he den is i society as put forth by the obama agenda or his own self-sufficiency and individuality liberty and freedom. they recognize it's a steep uphill climb. is he running from behind and realizes he has a lot of catching up to do. >> carl cammeron in toledo. president obama made his -- ed henry our chief white house correspondent live in kent ohio today where the president had a rally. we talked about these polls that have just come out, ed. to this question, who is better on the economy? president obama gets the nod in ohio. >> that is what is is amazing because the economy was supposed to be his sort of achilles heel. if you look at the unemployment here in the state of ohio is just over 7%. almost a full point lower than the national average. look at that "new york times" cbs news poll you were talking been 00 question of who would better handle the economy, the president actually comes in at 51% among ohio voters in the poll. 45% say mitt romne
on wednesday. and bret, in my experience debating with governor romney some four years ago, it appeared to me that there were teams on the debate stage he was almost telegraphing some of his emotions and feelings, body language and facial expressions, that's an important thing that i think that people watch for, are you pushing his buttons and going to through to him. i don't know that i've noticed it as much in this year's primaries. how important is it that mitt romney get under the skin of barack obama or that barack obama get under the skin of mitt romney, and that it can show to the audience? >> well, you know, audiences report that they take as much as 65% of the meaning from how something is said over what it said. so, body language and how he appears on the stage is very important and you know, normally when a candidate against defensive. that he is when they start looking bad and that happens with barack obama. it happened when he told hillary that she was likeable enough. he got defensive and he didn't look very good. and et cetera happened sometimes with governor romney, when he di
out. >> and paul ryan had to give ten years of his returns to romney. >> right. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> thanks. >> coming up. the republican voter suppression strategy in pennsylvania suffered a big loss in court today. joy reid will join me on that. by bright eyes you're not just looking for a house. you're looking for a place for your life to happen. it will be a dollar saved by somebody who switched to esurance. like, dollar karma. being online, esurance saves dollars that come back as more dollars for you. esurance. now backed by allstate. click or call. esurance. now backed by allstate. boproductivity up, costs down, thtime to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics. ups came in, analyzed our supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> i could have shown mitt romney months ago how to win tomorrow's debate. but i waited until tonight because i know it's way too late to try to teach mitt romney new lines for the big event.
. if governor romney wins it is likely -- would kick the can into next year. leave everything the same for a few months. let -- the new president come into office and get it together. probably in the spring. president obama wins the election, then right after the election, lame duck, the clock will start ticking and he will be under a lot of pressure to do something. let me say one other thing. you know, i think the most likely scenario is that we are actually going to have to go into next year, see tax rates rise for everybody, because it is then that we see enough economic pain that it generates political will necessary to do the kind of things we need to get done and -- that means that addressing our long-term fiscal problems which means cutting spending, and raising tax revenue to address long-term fiscal issues. >> thanks very much for coming in. >> thank you. >>> what's it mean for mitt romney if he's less popular be george w. bush? that's coming up next. also, what caused this deadly school bus crash outside of a high school? we have details. because of business people like you. and regio

that i've noticed it as much in this year's primaries. how important is it that mitt romney get under the skin of barack obama or that barack obama get under the skin of mitt romney, and that it can show to the audience? >> well, you know, audiences report that they take as much as 65% of the meaning from how something is said over what it said. so, body language and how he appears on the stage is very important and you know, normally when a candidate against defensive. that he is when they start looking bad and that happens with barack obama. it happened when he told hillary that she was likeable enough. he got defensive and he didn't look very good. and et cetera happened sometimes with governor romney, when he did the $10,000 bet with governor perry. so, it's very important that governor romney stay on offense, keep making the case about the economy and keep pushing an alternative vision that the american people can see as a better path and a better way forward to improving the economic conditions. if he does that, he'll put the president on the defensive. if he allows the presiden

for four years. as president. mitt romney has been through a long and grueling campaign. there is very little white space left on his canvas. so if they're really going to do something different that changes how they're understood, it has to be something very big. >> it's interesting, both candidates, campaigns are trying to lower expectations a lot. do you think mitt romney actually could be kind of better prepared than his campaign that's trying -- >> there's no question, he participated in 20 debates and as you know, you hosted a few of them, he was always well prepared. he understood what was at stake and i thought he was perhaps better prepared than any of the other candidates but you know, these debates can reinforce the current perception of the candidates and i think that will pretty much help president obama, but if mitt romney can create a different impression that he's somebody that's more likeable, that he understands the issues andhat he's more compassionate or empathetic, it could re-align the campaign. i don't think by much, because president obama right now is in a very
, it is clear there is one common trait people who have run against mitt romney in years, they don't really like the guy, there is something about his approach to toll poll aches that really gets under their skin this is a bipartisan thing. mccain in 2008 to me is the classic example. it seems to be true of obama. i wonder though is there a potential then, because we have seen that romney can carry out attacks pretty well in debates, is there a phones that romney gets under obama's skin in a way that unnerves him, off his game and forces him into some kind of unflattering moment? do you see some kind of potential there? >> i -- people who know better than i tell me the president has developed a real dislike, at a distance, from mitt romney, just like the others you mentioned in the past, because mitt romney shows politicians in some respects the worst and most manipulatives a spoesks themself these don't want to see. i think president obama has to keep his cool. kent come off as condescending. he has got to let mitt romney, in boxing terms, let mitt romney attack and then the president has to be
and a half years. >> bill: all right. you are going to make a prediction for me tonight. you think romney is going to do well on wednesday. >> i do think he is going to do well. >> are you rooting for romney by the way? >> at this point i can't bring myself to ask for four more years of this. >> bill: you are rooting for romney. >> just like i said, i can't stand another four years of this. i will will gamble on a different approach. >> bill: there you go. directly ahead, ben stein says hillary clinton should lose her job as secretary of state over the assassination in libya. and later actor samuel l. jackson ranting on behalf of >> bill: personal story segment tonight, commentator ben stein very angry about the assassination of the american ambassador to libya. earlier this week mr. stein said this about secretary of state hillary clinton. >> she should have resigned over that murder of the ambassador in libya because it was her fault that he didn't have adequate security. >> oh o, you know what? it is a good point. you know, when -- >> -- she is in charge. >> yeah. >> if she screws up,
's been in dress rehearsal for five years. i suspect that governor romney is going to come well prepared to put the president obama on edge. what will the president have to do early on is jump-start and make sure that governor romney never gets the ball back. >> other things working in governor romney's favor, challengers always do well in first debate. >> he really is prepared and he does speak in sound bites and he's very good at this. he'll do well. the key to a debate, if you want to see how it moves the american people is to turn off the sound, watch the mannerisms, it's not what they say, there may be a zinger and that could change things, it's not what they say but their mannerisms. the president has to avoid being irritable. governor romney will try to put him off-balance. he has to relax, he has to show a little sense of humor, show why he's likable. that's all nonverbal clues. >> maggie, doesn't mitt romney also in this debate, he needs to have a moment that dominates news coverage in the days coming out. >> yes, absolutely. to governor dean's point, i agree. there's a concern
for millionaires. obama and his liberal allies? we can't afford four more years. [ romney] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> well, we are happy to say that the dog is making a recovery. >> the dog was stabbed after an incident. we went out to find out how she is doing. >> with her shaved skin you can still see the scars on this two- year-old. they were worried that she would not make it. it was stabbed seven times. it was following a domestic dispute. >> we were very concerned. >> several of the wounds were serious. michael is an officer with the washington humane society. he has been out there rescuing abused pets. >> i was surprised what happened. in this case, she recovered and is resting. >> walking around. >> how can you do that to that poor little thing? there are some sick people in the world. >> it was thought that the suspect has mental issues. the dog is loving life. >> there are others. you can find them on our website. >> you can learn something from animals like that. >> it is nice to see someone taking such good care of her now. well still to come on abc 7
cannot afford four more years like the last four years. >> romney cannot afford more polls like today. after he was caught on tape disparagingly 47% of americans who pay no income tax, who, he said a " feel like victims," romney is trailing president obama by 12% and pennsylvania, nine points in florida, 10 in ohio. >> i have been across this country. my heart aches for the people i have seen. >> in his new ad, running looks right at -- running looks right at voters. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle- class americans. >> i do not believe we can get very far with leaders to write off half the nation as a bunch of victim's. >> the auto bailout helps the president here. >> i need you to register to vote. i need you to start voting six days from now on october 2. >> early voting. in started last friday in south dakota. and the first voting in a battleground state starts tomorrow, in iowa. the election is beginning weeks before november 6. wbal-tv 11 news. >> and 11 years as continuing coverage of commitment 2012 on our website -- wbaltv.com. be sure to click on "pol
, it has struck me that the romney campaign has been very year that they don't want to give the specifics of that choice. they have been given a chance time and time again. well, what loopholes would you close, well, you know, i will work that out after i'm elected. see me about that after the election. surprising with a guy of that kind of business experience that you are dealing in numbers and you would think specifics. >> well, part of the problem that he has is that... . >> jon: part of. >> yeah, he made all these commitments in the primary campaign. and you remember, and they just kept pushing everybody to the right. and so seemed like every week there was a new challenger coming up and he was playing whack-a-mole, he had to knock them down. >> jon: very kind of you, even mole i think is actually... . >> in the course of that he wound up with a lot of commitments. so i mean, just think about, this debt is a terrible problem. he said that you know, and they ran that little debt clock up. well, it will be a problem when interest rate goes up if we don't, as i said if we don't deal with
, mitt romney has been campaigning for two years and only five weeks left in the campaign. forgive me but i want to look at a couple of polls here. 42% of americans now think the economy will get better in the next year. 18% think it will get worse and 32% say it will stay the same and in a "new york times" poll when asked who can handle the economy better, obama now leads romney by 6 points in ohio and 5 in florida. with five weeks left, with months, years of campaigning isn't romneyus, southbound in danger of losing the rationale for the campaign that he is the better steward of the economy? >> people focus near the end. the president has done a good job of trying to distort the record. higher take home pay for middle class. progrowth economic policies. that right there creates about 7 million jobs. in the final analysis, people are going to realize all the president is offering is more of the same but with another round of stimulus and higher tax returns rates on job creators. we are offering specific reforms. strengthen social security. grow jobs. have an energy policy that unleas
romney hasn't been forceful enough. last year -- last elections 61% 45%. romney is running better than mccain ran in the polls. and i do believe it's because of disenchantment with president obama i know a will the of people myself antidotal doesn't do much good here. who they are not sure about romney, that's why i'm saying that the first debate means everything if he can inspire people who are not devoted. 42% devoted to president obama are not going to vote for romney. there is swing area there where if the president comes off weak or flustered. if romney can fluster him. romney is going to pick those up quickly there is much bigger than the first debate. >> i would say president obama is a known quantity. is he probably not going to change people's opinions of him. romney is a little different. even though he has been doing this for years now we have been through a whole series. people didn't watch those. people didn't watch the convention he have a big audience he is the one that needs to make a big impression. >> bill: no doubt. people need to look at the two men on the stage and

about this, the romney camp seized on comments of the president, 14-year-old videotape they dredged up when president obama was a state senator in illinois pounding away on the bump in the road comment that was taped on "60 minutes" and just aired this last sunday. does it show that the romney campaign is grasping at straws at this point trying to gain the traction that they have tried to get all along? >> it's almost like they're sinking and they're grasping for a life preserver to stay afloat. you know, today you showed the clip at the beginning of the program and romney made the point that obama is constantly trying to pick winners and losers but he's picking losers but if that's the case he would be supporting mitt romney. they're ten points behind in ohio, a state that no republican has ever won the white house without winning. that said, almost insurmountable challenge for mitt romney. it's a bigger problem for the obama campaign and that's overconfidence. the polls look so good for obama right now that the obama campaign has to hope that they get out and vote. >> hogan, similar
romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is expectations, so much of a political debate like this. one of the president's advisers the other day talking about, you know, the president's so loquacious. he's got to keep his answers tighter. and by turns, mitt romney's camp talking about the president's gifted oratorical skills. so they both can't be right, but i think both sides are relatively confident going into this. >> to hear both of them tell it, the other guy is the best debater since abe lincoln himself. mike viqueira, thank you so much. appreciate your time, sir. there are, of course, great expectations on both sides for next week's debate. the pressure is really on for mitt romney to knock it out of the park, as he entrance the debate, trailing in nine of
for iconic line, are you better off than four years ago? >> i think from romney's point of view, he has to do a couple of things. he has to make the case as to why obama's record is wrong which won't be news. he has to address the concern that a lot of people have and 47% video didn't help that he would favor the rich over the middle-class. he has to explain why his economic plan would actually help the middle-class is the best plan for the middle-class. it's not just about protecting romney's rich friends. farce is the president is concerned, if its wash, that is fine. he doesn't need to score an knockout blow. if it's a tie he comes out ahead. i think he'll go after romney and make that same pointed that romney's plans is protecting the rich. and also, this is key since the democratic convention, they seem to have gotten people to feel more optimistic about the economy. polls indicate that people are not as pessimistic about the economy he has to keep up that belief. >> eric: that sounds like it's fascinating interview. we can't wait until wednesday night. >> me, too. this is one of those m
